Long after a hasty young marriage that lasts ten years, it is easy for him to lose his way in the neon glitter and the lovely ladies that come his way. Long after the loves, the acting, the drinking, and the broken dreams, he tries to make some sense of his life. He looks at isms and what he calls the markers that will keep his faith intact, that will bring him to the simple conclusions in his twilight years.There is a family disconnect, a murder of a favored uncle, a suicide of a favored aunt, a mother that made her own life a sacrifice for his sister and him. It is likely a story that is not so unlike that of everyman.What Happens Next? A Lifes True Tale is a relatively short memoir and a fictional brother to the authors The Cracked Mirror - Reflections Of An Appalachian Son. While The Cracked Mirror... is ninety percent accurate and covers some of the ground, there are other boldly described elements of the authors errors and omissions in his life.
